Oldest African-American church still operating in Bledsoe County, Tennessee.

If you ever pass through the small town of Pikeville, Tennessee you will find this church sitting about a quarter mile outside of town. Ask how to find it, because it sits on some back road.

I’ve passed by the church many times and never new the history. I always did like how it looked and the little plot of land it sat on.

The church has always been closed when I drive by it. Finally stopped and took some pictures and learned something.
